See that boy with his head in the sky
Spends his days and his nights gettin' high
What he's searching for is how to be free
what he finds is that he's lost hold of reality

See those people on the corner each day
Idly watching as their life slips away
What they don't ever take time out to see
Is they can be whatever they wanna' be

-You're not a robot
-You're not a robot
-You're not a robot
-You're not a robot

What is necessary to understand
Is how they think they've got our lives pre-programmed
To break their mold you must remember this key
Don't ever lose your sense of individuality
When they try to tell me how I should live
How much I can take and how much to give
Whatever tricks they use or catches they try
They can't stop me from living my life as mine

-I'm not a robot

-I'm not a robot
-I'm not a robot
-I'm not a robot

Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'
Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'

Used to be, once upon a time, that I never would fight / for somethin'
I'd back down, turn around and run and it would always come / to nothin'
But now I've found a better way, I turned my eyes and my heart up skyward
Now it's a brand new day, and it's gonna' be my finest hour
I've got the power

Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'
Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'

Now nothin' keeps me down, I stand my ground when I have to
Nothing's too big or too small, I give my all and I come through
I left those running days behind, you're lookin' at a big girl now
So excuse me while I speak my mind, and turn you on to the lowdown

Now I walk in the light, and it's made my vision very clear
I've got my goal in sight, and I know I'm gonna make it there

Now it's my chance to dance, and you better believe I'm a-gonna' party
My beat may not be yours, if you can't get in to it I'm sorry
Gonna' take this world by storm, so be forewarned 'cause I'm a-comin'
So please don't get in my way, 'cause this girl aint got no time for funnin'
And I'm not runnin'

Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'
Ooo, ooo, ooo, oooh, no more runnin'

Yes I've made up my mind, and I'm growing stronger everyday
I won't run, I won't hide, and nobody can turn me away
And I'm not runnin'

Yes I've made up my mind, and I'm growing stronger everyday
I won't run, I won't hide, and nobody can turn me away
I look up to the light, and with praise and joy I watch it shine
It gives me strength to fight, and ensures the victory is mine
Mine

23 Dec 2006 - Newcleus - "Automan"

They met one day in a Summer storm
The melodrama had begun
Their senses told them that it was wrong
But the damage had begun
She was a young lady of 23
A woman in the prime of life
He was a child of technology

The scientists hadn't planned it this way
That their creation could be loved
They just wanted to play God for a day
And dethrone the Lord above
But their mistake was this two's pain
For her love could not be denied
She refused to listen as he explained

"I'm an automan,"
"I'm made of wires...wires...wires..."
"I'm an automan,"
"There ain't no way that I could ever love you"

He wasn't programmed to understand
This feeling that tugged at her heart
Though technically he was a man
They were still a world apart
Love wasn't in his capacity
But her love grew on and on
Again he pleaded "why don't you see?"

"I'm an automan,"
"I'm made of wires...wires...wires..."
"I'm an automan,"
"There ain't no way that I could ever love you"
"I'm an automan,"
"I'm made of wires...wires...wires..."
"I'm an automan,"
"There ain't no way that I could ever love you"

She held him close as if to say
"You live so that means you can love"
With tears in his eyes he pulled away
He said "I don't even have a heart beat...listen"

"I'm an automan,"
"I'm made of wires...wires...wires..."
"I'm an automan,"
"There ain't no way that I could ever love you"
"I'm an automan,"
"I'm made of wires...wires...wires..."
"I'm an automan,"
"There ain't no way that I could ever love you"
"No...no...no..."
